Deploying serverless platforms on Kubernetes
Submitted by Vishal Biyani (@vishal-biyani) on Sunday, 12 February 2017
The talk will demo running serverless (Function as a service) style frameworks on top of Kubernetes. I will compare Funktion from Fabric8, Iron Functions and Fission from Platform9; each framework comes with it’s strength & weaknesses like connectors or maturity of deployment. I will evaluate and demo these frameworks from POV of 1) Built in triggers 2) Cold start capability 3) Runtime availability 4) Ease of use: deployment and operations 5) Additional features such as API gateway etc. I will demonstrate two distinct use with different latency requirements.
00-10: Introduction to Serverless/Function as a Service - needs, use cases & commercial/open source landscape
10-24: Walkthrough of features of the three frameworks, pros & cons and usability impressions
24-30: Install the frameworks on Kubernetes cluster (+Demo)
30-40: Deploy sample applications on all 3 platforms (+Demo)
